If you think scientists are boring eggheads in white coats who never leave the lab, this dynamically illustrated book will set you straight! Meet the rebels: super-brainiacs who were off-the-charts smart, but also made mistakes, argued, took risks, performed weird experiments, broke the rules . . . and achieved our greatest leaps forward. From dinosaur hunters to germ finders to quantum physicists, these men and women pushed the boundaries of science to get to the truth. Now, through fascinating stories, you can find out how they did it.

The scientific rebels include:
Jabir Ibn Hayyan, the world’s first chemist, astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, Antonie Van Leeuwenhoek, who discovered bacteria, top dinosaur hunter Mary Anning, inventor Thomas Alva Edison, fossil hunters Louis and Mary Leaky, quantum physicist Niels Bohr, physicist Albert Einstein, nuclear physicist Robert J. Oppenheimer, and evolutionary biologist Lynn Rothschild
